Scrappy Mountain Range Quilt Along Details

Now that fall’s here, lets get sewing! Ready for a quilt along?

The Scrappy Mountain Range foundations are really popular, but some people have a hard time using them, so I thought we could make a quilt together. In this Quilt Along I’ll let you know which foundation paper pieced Scrappy Mountain Range blocks to put where and how to cut and piece the background. The quilt is made of mountain ranges that vary in height from 5” all the way down to 1”. Here are some mockups of the quilt in different color ways.

(Note: the mockups are simplified and don’t show the snow caps on the mountains.)

    A nice throw size. You can always add another row to the bottom for length.


  • Scrappy Mountain Range foundations
    The mountains are foundation paper pieced and you will need to purchase the foundations in my shop. Don’t print any right now. I’ll send you printing instructions via email (when you sign up here) and post the instructions here too on Monday (Oct 7th).

  • Printer and lightweight printer or foundation paper piecing paper (about 50 pieces)

  • 3 3/4 yards background fabric (can be scrappy if desired)

  • 3 yards total of scraps for the mountains (can be supplemented by yardage)

  • 1/3 yard for binding

  • 4 yards backing

  • A piece of batting at least 64” x 74”

Important Dates:

  • October 7th
    I’ll send out the pattern with the foundation printing instructions and basic instructions on how to use the foundations. This week will be spent printing, gathering fabric, and sorting scraps.

From there on out, we will be making two rows of the quilt each week.

  • Oct 14-20 - make the bottom two rows

  • Oct 21-28 - make the next two rows

We’ll continue on like this until we make the top two rows of the quilt the week of Nov. 25th.

  • Nov. 25-Dec 1 - make the top two rows

  • Dec 2-8 - sew rows together and celebrate!


Why, yes, there will be. Post a picture of your finished rows each week with the hashtag #mountianrangeqal and tag me to be entered. More details on prizes and sponsors coming soon!
